Team Bolsius Bouscholte on A3

Corporate Sailing and Teambuilding

Are you ready to set sail with your team, colleagues or clients during a Corporate Ocean Race Day or a Teambuilding Event.
You will set sail with our team on the legendary 60ft Volvo Ocean Racer BOUdragon.

Top Corporate Event:  Scheveningen – Den Helder (1 day)
“Life at the Extreme” – A spectacular sailing adventure you will never forget
 
With a strong south westerly breeze, sailing downwind from Scheveningen to Den Helder is an absolute dream.
Leaving in the morning, ready to go to battle,  tie yourself to our safe ocean yacht and experience the ultimate Downwind Run.
IJmuiden is too soon, we continue the surfing till Den Helder. 20 knots, 25 knots , maybe more when the conditions are right.
At the end of the afternoon , we arrive in Den Helder, dry up and taste the compulsory Captains Drink on board.
In the evening we have a great seaman’s dinner in the traditional naval part of Den Helder.
After dinner, we bring you back by bus to your place of departure.

Scheveningen – Pin Mill/UK (2 days)
“The toughest Teambuilding there is”
Two days and nights of sailing, the first part will be upwind and demanding. Don’t worry, we provide you with the best anti seasick pills there are.
It will be like we call it, “character building stuff”.  But, there is no sweeter reward than the first pint in Pin Mill Heaven.
Let’s see how your team holds together.
Analyse in a calm and mature way, which lessons can be learned. There is always a new Team compass to be agreed upon.
After the meeting, time to celebrate around a typical English meal, washed away by brown or blond beer. 
Time to sleep a couple hours before we head back to the trace of the “Engelandvaarders” probably with a big genaker.
Sailing back to The Netherlands will be fast, time to put the new Team compass into action.
